Posted by Lizelle Pool on Monday, December 21, 2009, In : Training 

You know the saying that is you keep on doing the same things you will keep on seeing the same results? This is very true on both sides of the scale of course. If you train really hard and eat really well, you will probably see amazing results and then it will be very hard for you to change your habits and I don’t blame you! The more realistic thing that we see all the time though is people doing the same workouts every day, eat the same meals every lunchtime and look exactly the same as la...

Rome wasn’t broken down in a day either

Posted by Lizelle Pool on Thursday, December 17, 2009, In : Nutrition

Are we obsessing enough about our health?

Posted by Lizelle Pool on Tuesday, December 1, 2009, In : Nutrition 

Strange question, you might say. Just look at it for a moment. We obsess about money, a lot. We obsess about Christmas and all the presents we must buy and the food we must prepare for the in laws coming over for the weekend. We obsess about work deadlines and when we are home we obsessed about clean towels and if the bed is made. This is all valid points to obsess about, but do we even stop for a second between all these obsessions of ours and think about how are we going to make the next ye...
